Tour of Dallas April 6, 2008

Yesterday I rode in my first bike event — the Tour of Dallas — with my friend Matt and his daughter Zoe. We rode the short route, which was originally planned to be 8 miles, but after a no-show by the company contracted to cone-off the bike route, it was changed to a little over nine miles. Not big deal for us, but for a young girl on a single speed bike, it was a great challenge, and Zoe did a fantastic job.

The ride benefitted the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. I’m not sure how many people rode in this event, but it was several thousand at least. My number was in the 3000s.

It was great to get out with lots of other riders and take over the streets. The Dallas Police were there to stop traffic and even ride along. It should be like this all the time. Cars suck.

Anyway, here I am.
